Job Seekers With Disabilities Focus Of New Website


Text Size  A  A

Tips for getting a job and keeping it are at the heart of a new government-funded website designed to help individuals with developmental disabilities become gainfully employed.

Through text and video-based features, the website known as JobTIPS offers tools for job seekers with disabilities to identify compatible employment opportunities. Moreover, the site offers advice on how to act in an interview or at work and tips on when and how to talk about a diagnosis.

JobTIPS was developed using nearly $1 million in grant money from the federal economic stimulus package provided through the National Institutes of Health.

In addition to assistance for individuals with disabilities, the website includes resources for educators, clinicians and transition specialists.
